A spokesperson said, “Sadly, we can confirm that two patients who had been cared for at Salisbury District Hospital and had tested positive for COVID-19 died on Saturday 4th December.

“One patient was in his 40s and had underlying health conditions. The other patient was in his 70s, also with underlying health conditions. Our thoughts and condolences are with the patients’ families and loved ones at this very difficult and distressing time.”

230 patients in total have now passed away at Salisbury District Hospital, within 28 days of a positive COVID-19 test. There are currently 9 COVID-19 positive patients being treated at the hospital.
